Mode of Hrvpamtion : Buchu, in vacuo. Ju
niper Berries, by distillation, to form a fine gin.
Cubeb extracted by displacement with spirits
obtained from Juniper Berries ; very littlo sugar
is used, and a small proportion of spirit. It is
more palatable than any now in use.
Buchu as prepared by Druggists, U of a dark
color. It is a plant that emits its fragrance ; tbe
action of a flame destroys this (its active principle)
leaving a dark and glntiuons decoction. Mine is
the color of ingredients. The Buchu in mv nren-
aration predominates ; tbe smallest quantity of
the other ingredients are added to prevent fer
mentation ; upon inspection it will be found not
to be a Tincture, as made in Pharmacopa:a, nor
is it a Syrup and therefore can be used in cases
where fever or inflammation exists, in this?, you
have the knowledgo of the ingredients and tbe
mode ef preparation.
Hoping that jrm will favor it with a trial, and
that upon inspection it will meet with your appro
bation, with a feeling of profound confidence,

It was part of the duties of an officer
on guard-to visit all the sentries during
the night, the time for visiting them be
ing usually an hour or so after the field
officer had Tisitcd the guard ; the field
officer being a Colouel or Major yho was
ou duty for the day, aud who came once
by day and once by night to visit the
guards, . and to see that all was as it
should be. There was no exact limit to
the number of times that this field-officer
might visit tbe guards ; but it was the
usual thinjr, and had become almost a
custom for him to come once by day and
once by night, so that after the last visit
the subaltern usually waited an hour or
so, walked round the limits of bis post,
visited all his sentries, and then turned
It was on a bitter cold morning iu Jan
uary that my turn for guard came on. I
marched niy men to their post, relieved
the old guard, aud then, having gone
through the regular duty and dined, en
deavored to pass the time until the field
officer had visited me. The previous
evening I. had been at a ball in the town,
and, in consequence, was very ..tired and
looked with condsiderable longing to the
period when I could refresh myself by
unrobing and enjoying a good snooze.
At length I heard the welcome chal
lenge "Who conies there?" which ws
answered by the response 'Hounds I"
"What rounds ?" "Grand rounds V and
"Guard, turn out!" was a signal which
I willingly obeyed, for I knew that in
about one hour afterward I should be in
the arms of the god of sleep.
Slipping on my cloak and cap, and
grasping my sword, I placed myself" iu
front ot the guard, and received the field
officer, who briefly asked me if all was
correct, directed me to dismiss my guard,
and rode off without saying -"Good-night."
Giving directions to the sergoant to
wake me in an hour, for the purpose
of visiting the sentries, I threw myself
into my arm-chair, and tried to read a
novel. The time passed very quickly,
and I liaiTu uap or two, and the sergeant
soon appeared with a lantern to conduct
me round the sentries.
It was a terrible night, the wind blow
ing hard, whilst the snow aud sleet were
driving along before it. The thermome
ter was several degrees below freezing, and
I felt that I deserved much from niy
country for performing so conscientious
ly my arduous duties. The sentries were
very much scatteicd, aud I had to walk
nearly two miles to visit them all. I ac
complished my task, however, and re
turned to the guard room, where I treat
ed uivse'f to a glass of grog, aud, throw
ing off my 'regimentals, I jumped into
bed, feeling that I really deserved the
In a few minutes I was fast asleep, not
even dreamiug of any of my fair partners
of the ball, but sound asleep. Suddenly
I became conscious of a great noise, which
sounded like a drum being beaten. At
first I did not realize my position, and
could not remember where I was, but at
last it flashed across me that I was on
guard, and that something was the mat
ter. J umping out of the bed, I called to
know who was there.
The sergeant answered in a great hur
ry, saying : "Sir the field-officer of the
day is coming, and the guard is turning
I rushed to my boots, pulled them on
over my, unstockioged feet ; thrust my
sword-arm into my large regimental
cloak, which I pulled over me ; jammed
my forage cap on my head, and, grasping
my sword, looked to the outward observ
er as though "fit for parade."
I was just in time to receive the field
officer, who again asked me if my guard
was correct. I answered, rather in a tone
of surprise, and said : "l'es, sir , all cor
rect." I could not imagine why my
guard should be visited twice, as such a
proceeding was very unusual, and per
haps my tone seemed to imply that I was
surprised. Whether it was that, or
whether a treacherous gust of wind re
moved the folds of my cloak and exhibi
ted the slightest taste in life of the end
of my night-shirt 1 know not, but the
field-officer, instead of riding off when be
received my answer, thrust his horse's
head. in the opposite direction and said :
"Now, sir, I want you to accompany me
round the sentries."
Had he told me that he wauled me to
accompany him to the regions below I
should scarce have ' been more horror

of temperature between a warm bed in a
warm room and the outside air ; and to

and cloak, was really suffering for one's
country and no mistake. I dare not show
the slightest hesitation, however, for fear
the state of my attire might be suspected,

to have escaped for only five minutes. A
non-commissioned officer- was ready with
a lantern, and we started on; our tour of
The field-officer asked several ques

field-officer's horse, as I slunk behind
him when the gas-light might have re
revealed too much.
It was terribly cold,, to be. sure, the
wind and snow almost numbing my limbs.
I had a kind of faint hope that the field
officer might think that I belonged to a
Highland regiment, and if he did observe
the scantiness of my attire, he might be
lieve that the kilt would explain it. I
struggled and shivered on, knowing that
all things must have an end, and that my
"rounds" must come to an end ' before
long. But I feared that I should not
again get warm during the night.
We had nearly completed our tour,
and were within a few hundred yards of
the cuard-room, wheu we passed the
between the sheets of a little cam p-bed 1 field-officer's quarters. I fondly hoped

that he would not pass theni. and that he
would dismiss me at the door, but I was
rather surprised to see a light come from
the windows, and to hear the sound of
musie. I was certain that there was a "hop"
going ou inside, and I already began- to
tremble, from a sort of instinct, that even
woise miafortunea were yet to attend me.
My premonitions were true, for upon
reaching his door my persecutor, in quite
a cheeful tone, said :
"Well, we've had a cold tour; you
must now come in aud take a glass qf

answered, "but I should not like to leave

he grasped my arm and almost dragged
me into the porch of his quarters.
WThen we entered the bouse and were
exposed to the light of the hall lamps, I
fancied that I saw a slight twinkle in the
eye of the officer, and I began to woader
whether he really knew of my predica
ment, ajjd wished to have his joke, lie,
however, gave no other intimations that I
saw, but quickly took off bis cloak and
said that I had better do thc same.
Seeing mo hesitate he said : "Come, look
alive off with it."
Further remonstrance, I found, would j
be useless, so that there was no help for
me but a full confession. Summoning
my courage, and fearing to hesitate, I
blurted out : "Colonel, I've no trousers
"The duee ' you havn't !'' he said.
"Well, you'd better go and put them on,
and then come here as soon as possible,
and have a glass of something warm."
I rushed out o.his quarters, halfdeter
Uiined not to return. I was fully awake
now, and shivered like a half-drcwned
du;r ; but no sooner had I dressed
than the Colonel s servant came over to
say that a quadrille was waitiug for
I determined to put a bold face upon
the matter, and entered the drawing
room, where a party of about fifty had
assembled. It was evident by the titters
of the young ladies, the grins of the men,
and the subdued smiles of the dowagers,
that my storj- was known.
The Colouel had told it as a good joke
to the Major, who had whispered it to
his wife ; she breathed it into the ear of
two of her friends, and in about ten min
utes every person in the room knew that
a young subaltern had unwillingly gone
the rounds in his night shirt.
As long as I staid iothat garrison I
was a standing joke. When the girls saw
me they always looked away and smiled,
and it seemed as impossible for me to ob
tain a serious auswer from any of them
as for a clown to preach a sermon. They
even seemed afraid to dance with me,
fearing, as I afterwards heard, to look at
my leg3, lest I might be deficient in some
article of raiment. I soon exchanged,
and wcBt into another regiment ; and
years afterwards heard my own adven
ture related in a crowded room, all the
details of the story being true except the
name of the former my misfortune hav
ing been attributed to an unfortunate fel
low who died in India.
I never went to bed on guard after

"Yes ! you told me to try the next

My grandfather stood doubtful for a
moment, but finally his sense of bumor
overcame his sense of injury, and he
laughed aloud. Then picking up his
hat he said :
"Come, boys, we might as well start
for the woods. : We shall have no dinner
until we shall have earned it, I perceive."
"Won't you have some bread and
cheece before you go ?" asked my grand
mother, generous in her victory, as wo
men almost always are. And so she won

need of any political division ? The in

All our States and Territories gain pop

territory as large as Ireland, and provide
for a yearly growth of a million and a

of Illinois, Iowa and Kansas, and entered
the great pastoral region. This reaches
up into Canada and the far Northwest.

"I have do wood to burn to-day. What
shall I do?"
"Oh, send Louisa round to pick up
some," said the good mao, making a
stride toward the door. .
"But she has already picked . all
"Then let her break up some
''But she has broken up everything al
ready." "Oh ! well, then do the next best thing
I must be off," said the farmer ; aud
off he was, whistling as he went, and no
doubt wondering in his heart what the
next best thing would turn out to be.
Noon came, and with it my grandfath
er and four hungry laborers. My grand
mother stood in the kitchen, spinning
on her great wheel, and singiog a pleas
ant little ditty ; Louisa was scouring the
back room, and the cat sat purring on
the hearth before a black and fireless
chimney, while the table sat in the mid
dle -of the room, spread for dinner, with
" Well, wife, here wo are," - said my
grandfather, cheerily. ,
"So I see," replied she, placidly.
"Ilave you had a good morning in the
cornfield ?". , . , ,
"Why, yes, so, so. But where's the din
"In the pot on the doorstep. Won't
you see if it is done?"
And on the doorstep, to be sure, sat
the great iron pot, nicely covered, ; but
not looking '; particularly steamy. My
grandfather raised tho cover and there
Canada. Mr. Derby's paper on the
Annexation of Canada, read at the So
cial Science Congress in Philadelphia,
was a strong plea for union. It showed
clearly that Canada is a fair bride forthe
United States, that she has a rieh dowry,
and that she needs union to perfect her
in all the good qualities that make a
prosperous State. From the revenue
report for 1869, it appears that 94 j.er
cent, of the expeditures of the working
classes were for food, clothes, shelter,
fuel and light. The British North
American Province, devoted to agricul
ture, forests, fisheries and mines, yield
much that we desire and require. On
oue side ot the line between ys, 5D0O
miles in leugth, there are forests of - pine
and spruce; on the other is a region
nearly denuded of its timber, opening
into treeless prairies. Canada and her
sister provinces yield the potato in abun
dance, and furnish inexhaustible supplies
of timber, oats, barley and fish. Iu Can
ada, and the United States, foreign com
merce languishes, and the tonage of each
in that commerce declines, while the free
inland trade cf the Union between forty
six States aud Territories grows from
year to year. A few years ago England
pressed us at a, sensitives poiut the
fisheries and extorted from'us a recip
rocity treaty. That treaty was abrogated,
and the pressure comes again at tho old
point.- While the treaty lasted there
was a brisk commerce between the two
peoples. The tonage of the provinces
doubled. The trade with England was
stationary, but the exports to the States
tripled, and the shipments to the States
exceeded the ehipments to Eugland. In
two years after tho treaty, tho shipments

Widow Jone's Cow. Widower Smith's
wagon stopped one moruing before Widow
Jones', and gave the usual signal that
he wanted somebody in the house, by
dropping his elbows on his knees. - Out
tripped the widow, as lively as a cricket,
with a tremendous black ribbon on her
snow-white cap. "Good morning" was
soou said on both sides, and the widow
waited for what was further to be said.
''Well, Ma'am Jones; perhaps you
don't want to sell one of your cows, no
how, no'.hin no way, do you ?"
"Well, there, Mister Smith you couldn't
have spoken my mind better. A poor
lone widow like me does not know what
to do with so many creatures, and -1
should be glad to trade, if we can fix it."
So they adjourned to the meadow

at the widow's face, and then walked
